    The organisation of the tour was very good. All accommodations very brilliant, better the aspected. Our tour guide Duy was very helpful and look after us very well. Downfall of the trip where other local tour guides ( special the one which was used for tour to Mekong Delta) as they English were very bad, was very difficult to understand and no much information was given. Personally I would stay longer on trips like Halong bay and Mekong river and spent less time in busy cities.

    Vietnam Adventure Dec 2016/Jan 2017. This trip was cut short due to my wife sustaining an injury to her face & teeth.Not caused by the Holiday group or Hotel. The quick help & speedy return to UK was helped by the way Exodus went about they part of the operation. As it was UK New year this causes some problems which they sorted out.The local hotel & people we met were really helpful & I would use this company again at any time.

    An excellent couple of weeks skillfully and cheerfully orchestrated by Nam our local guide.   What a beautiful country.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Most inspirational moments were:++ sheltering from really monsoon rain near the cu chi tunnels++ celebrating the awesome Sai Gon rush-hour++ speaking (obviously nonsense) vietnamese to the nun in charge of a local orphanage++ capturing the most beautiful flowers on camera in a peaceful garden++ a new and untried fruit for lunch most days ++ Han OiWhat did you think of your group leader?Nam was ever cheerful, with enormous amounts of energy and lots of interesting tales to tell.  He will make the trip for many who travel with him.  Key phrase; 'are we feeling heavy?' - which you could take to mean;1. Do we need an exceptionally strong local coffee?or 2. Is it so long since we had a pee that we have acquired an additional 10Kg in weight?Huge thanks to Nam for his energy and good humour. Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Key advice - dont take so much stuff with you!!!Oh - and - do visit the backpacker area in Sai Gon after dark if you like to see what the local (and international) folks get up to.  A real treat to drink beer hoi and watch the hundreds of people sitting in the street.

    What a brilliant country! This was a wonderful trip for experiencing the landscapes, people, culture, towns and villages of Vietnam with the help of a well informed local guide. It was a great introduction which has whetted our appetite to go back and explore further!   What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The whole holiday was full of amazing experiences so it’s difficult to single out one moment  but here are a few of our favourites:  Kayaking in Halong Bay – enjoying the tranquillity of this awesome limestone landscape The Old Quarter of Hanoi –the lively street life and managing to cross the road by ourselves Hoi An – the fun of the tailors, the lanterns at night, the  bike ride– the exhilaration of hearing the wind rising in the banana trees before the monsoon rain descended on us Dinner with local people – the courtesy of our hosts and the wonderful food (but not the betel nut chewing – beware!)The Citadel at Hue – the monks’ music resonating around the courtyard of this splendid buildingGroup team building at Brown Eyes, Hue!!War Remnants museum – because it brings home how recently Vietnam and her people have experienced devastation and makes their optimism and sense of fun all the more amazing The Mekong Delta trip – all of itWhat did you think of your group leader?Ha was terrific – very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his country. He seemed to intuitively know how much information we needed and when. We were a small group and therefore had the bonus of spending a lot of time with him. This was brilliant as he was great fun to be with – full of laughter and fun – which made for a very happy holiday. He gave us the opportunity to have a wide range of experiences and to better understand and appreciate Vietnam and its people. An excellent representative for Exodus!Do you have any advice for potential travellers?As others have mentioned do travel light . You don’t need to take a lot of clothes as the laundry facilities at Hue or Ho Ann are cheap so you only really need to take a week’s clothes for a two week trip. Leave sufficient luggage space to bring home souvenirs. If possible have an idea of a garment you’d like made at Hoi Ann – it’s really worth it and great fun.  Take up all the optional excursions on offer– these provided some of our best experiences.  Just go – go soon – and make the most of the experience!Is there anything else you would like to add?We went on the Angkor Wat extension. Whilst it was great to travel in Cambodia we’d suggest that  Exodus consider re-ordering the trip as the visit to the Killing Fields and Genocide Museum are at the end  which means you leave on rather a sober note. We would have preferred to end with the positive experience of the temples at the Anghor complex.

    This was an amazing introduction to the variety that is Vietnam - every day had its special memories so it is impossible to identify a single highlight.  The guide, Chinh, was brilliant and his passion for his own country was contagious.  The peoples of Vietnam must surely be the most charming, friendly, smiling and laughter-filled peoples in the world!What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?As is obvious from the above, picking out one individual memory above all others is impossible.  Should it be the Marble Mountain Pagoda?  The homestay and preparing (or at least attempting to be of some help with our efforts) the evening meal, the war museum in HCM City, or the ready laughter and good humour of the Hanoi shop keeper as my wife attempted to haggle a bargain price?  Or the Cu Chi Tunnels, Halong Bay, the overnight train from Hanoi to Hue, the ...?  I can't choose. What did you think of your group leader?Absolutely excellent in every regard.  He was instrumental in creating this memorable holiday and a large factor in so many of the warm memories we carry from it.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Pack light.  Buy any extra clothing you need when in the country.  You'll be glad you left room in the case for your purchases.  And don't be put off by accounts of the traffic and road-crossing experience.  It's actually quite exhilerating.Is there anything else you would like to add?Exodus don't over-sell their holiday in their information sheets and notes.  If you like what you read about what is on offer on this trip, I can guarantee the reality of the experience will be so very, very much greater than your expectations from the brochure text - so go for it!

    This is an amazing trip from the North to the South of Vietnam. You manage to visit Cities, sail in Halong Bay, travel by overnight train and get to experience some wonderful countryside. It's hectic but there is time to rest and relax and enjoy the amazing sights. A fantastic trip.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Too many to single out one thing. The night on Halong Bay was lovely. Hoi An is an amazing place with its lovely buildings and river. Sailing through the Mekong delta canals being rowed by a little old lady. The peace and quiet of the homestay. Cycling in Hoi An was great. Too windy to go to the beach, but we had a fantastic cycle through the countryside, rice fields and seeing where all the local vegetables were grown. Followed by a barbeque on a quiet river bank - bliss.Cocktails on the 50th floor of the building with the helipad in Saigon.What did you think of your group leader?Thuy was great. He really looked after us and took us to many lovely restaurants. We were very fussy eaters which I think proved a bit of a challenge at first but Thuy managed to make sure we were well catered for. Very knowledgeable and kind - a great representative for Exodus.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?As others have said laundry is cheap and easy to get done. So travel light as there are so many beautiful clothes to buy or get made out there.Is there anything else you would like to add?My only problem was the fact that you don't fly directly to Vietnam but have to go to Kuala Lumper then on to Hanoi on the outward journey. It made the journey so much longer especially as we were delayed on both legs going out. However Malaysian Airlines are very good so maybe it's better to keep the quality. I love the fact that with Exodus you do so many different things on holiday. I feel that i've done so much it feels more like i've been away a month. The mixtures of cities and countryside is great - you get such a good feel for the country.

    A wonderful introduction to the history, culture and present day life in Vietnam.  However, it was quite city based and we felt that it would have been good to have had more opportunity to experience the countryside as well.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Halong Bay - even though it was misty!  This added to the atmosphere in a strange sort of way. I loved Hoi An.What did you think of your group leader?Excellent - very knowledgable and good fun. He sometimes spoke a little bit too fast for our aging hearing.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Be prepared for quite an intensive agenda, but above all enjoy it!Is there anything else you would like to add?The organisation and planning was second to none and we felt in very safe hands.

    A brilliant country to visit - beautiful and very welcoming.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?We were lucky that the sun shined on us at Halong Bay and Hoi An was a lovely destination i would go back to,Mekong Delta was beautiful We took the options to cycle and those were some of the best moments of the holiday with the chance to see the countryside and villages and interact with local people. Laughter yoga at 6am in Hanoi an experience not to miss !What did you think of your group leader?Hai was a great leader -he was endlessly jollyn and he worked very hard to keep a diverse group of people all happy. His choice of restaurants every day were great and gave us a great diversity of different food. His recomendations through out the holiday were always spot on which meant he never got a night off from us !! Do you have any advice for potential travellers?In the cities - just go for it when crossing the roads ( and repeat ' oi choi oi ! ' continuously ) as you stare down the bikes ! Travel light - there are laundry options as you travel. Last night in Ho Chi Minh City - cocktails at the Rex Hotel are a must!Is there anything else you would like to add?I had a brilliant holiday but - The train was truly as bad as i had been warned by fellow travellers over the last year. I had looked at organising my own transfer via inland flight and it would have been easily done without needing to involve Exodus in any extra work.However on phoning them i was told it was not too bad a train - basic but ok and anyway everyone spends time in the bar carriage. The truth is the berths were filthy,you have to sit on the bottom beds to eat , going down to the bar involves trying to wade your way thru 10 carriages crammed with people in the walkways to a bar only able to take a few people- and the berths can never be left unattended so someone will always be left behind.. I am a traveller used to basic conditions but this was not a pleasant experience. There were several people who would also have chosen to spend extra to fly Hanoi to Hue and pay the extra involved. The hotel in Hoian needs to get room safes sorted out - its a complete pain keep going to reception and having to recount your money in front of the public everytime you want to take money out of their safe.

    Vietnam by wheelchair - interesting!! (But very do-able)Beautiful Country, wonderful food and very friendly and helpful peopleWhat was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Vietnam is not what you expect - what did I expect...I don't know. It was very beautiful especially Hoi An, Saigon is gobsmacking and really takes you by suprise - more like New York than how I visualised Saigon. The best bit... going on a San Pan and staying at the home stay in the Meekong Delta, lovely... being part of a large family, cooking the dinner and relaxing in the open air on a very pretty veranda.What did you think of your group leader?Our group leader was excellent, yes we did have a couple of blips but we had some very strong personalities in our group, a partially sighted lady and my husband in a wheelchair... but we all came out unscathed and the tour guide really thought ahead, if we couldnt do it, he had already planned an alternative...  that may have been a different route in or out of a place .e.g slope, lift etc instead of stairs or a different activity.. I went up into the caves my husband did KyakingDo you have any advice for potential travellers?Lots and we have written a guide called' Travel tips for wheelchair users in Vietnam', which we have sent to Exodus. A few tips to think about...Walk in the road, go slow and dont rushOnly consider Vietnam if you have a little mobility - you will need to get in and out of your wheelchair as every where has a step or two, but once you are in - fairly flatLet people help you - they are only too willingBe flexibleBe prepared for half measures of disability awareness - lovely assessible toilet with grab rails - up 4 steps...Saigon you can use the pavements - they have ramps - but they are not parallel to each other you have to look for the next one - so you will go down a ramp go across the road and find you are facing a high pavement edgeIt can be hard at times but worth itMake the most of your free time to recharge your batteriesIs there anything else you would like to add?If you are going to visit and are taking a wheelchair with you the two places that are no no's are My Son, all ruins and totally inassessible and the tour round the Meekong Delta Home stay Village, quite hairy by foot, impossible by wheelchair.You will not be disappointed with the Vietnamese people they were so friendly and helpful, even if you didnt ask they will see if you are okVietnam is easy to navigate and very safe to wander around on your own - great holiday... Thank you

    Was very pleased with the ease that I was able to understand, and navigate your website. Have actually been looking at several other tour companies, some have played phone tag with me. Others have not bothered to return calls. Their websites have been difficult, to work and understand. Am super excited to be working with you. Am now working on finding affordable airfare. Thanks again. Looking forward to a wonderful adventure. Have already been giving several friends your info.
